    I am so sorry. I know how you feel. My daughter, Nicole, has a rare lung disease as well as a rare heart condition and I took her to a new pediatrician when she was 17 years old and the doctor had never heard of her illness. Needless to say, we didn’t go back. You should have more than one option for a primary. We have to drive 35 minutes to…[Read more]

    My mom was the opposite and from 15 years old until I moved out at 21…[Read more]

    Hi Heather:

I hope that this will give her the confidence that she needs to realize that she can do whatever she wants to do with her life …. illness and all.…[Read more]
